The promise of the helicopter prize is right up Rose’s street, and I think all this is so positive for her. Today she told me she’d sneaked into my room and taken a pile of Arthur Ransomes she wants to read. At bedtime she got out her reading frame (a card window I made for her because it helps her keep to the correct line of text) and began reading Swallows and Amazons to me – very slowly. I gave her the sounds as you suggested in your last message/video, putting in the correct vowel and consonant sounds for her to blend. I think, especially beginning Easyread whilst she is off school, is giving Rose a lovely positive experience of reading, and she is so relieved to be listened to and acknowledged in her difficulties and her intelligence.
